Laura Genovese

Laura Genovese is an artist from the Tri-Cities area, Coquitlam B.C.  She loves to create pieces that incorporate elements from nature.  Her “Mixed Media” pieces are a collage of  acrylic paint on canvas which incorporate paper, glue, sand, wood …. even plaster and shells are often used.  Inspired by the Canadian West Coast, Laura is often found creating images for collectors, friends and family.  When Laura is travelling she creates watercolor painings on location!

 

Laura’s desire to pursue painting came from a Call for Artists through the city of Port Coquitlam where she participated in developing the Shaughnessy Street Underpass Community Mural with other local artists.

Laura Genovese helped paint on an utility box at the corner of Coast Meridian and Robertson St. in Port Coquitlam, BC. Laura produced a series of “Spirit Ladies”  acrylic paintings.   Each is  3 1/2ft by 6 ft!

Visuals offered an opportunity to exhibit during the 2010 Olympics in Squamish and to exhibit in Whistler to present… where Laura’s family has a home.                         Laura exhibits annually with the Port Moody Art Association where she is the acting President.

 

Laura enjoys working with a variety of media-acrylic, watercolor, plaster, glass and other natural elements to create landscape, floral and “pet portrait” paintings.
